I took out as many books as I could find on this and similar topics and this is the best one I found. The information is interestingly laid out, the book is easy to navigate, and I really liked the stories of expats included throughout the book.
Don't expect this book to give you every detail about immigration to an individual country, but do expect it to tell you what kind of visas are offered and where to get started.
Overall, a refreshing book that gives one reason to research leaving.
My issue with the book though is that some of the information about countries appears to be based on old stereotypes, incorrect information or just flat out lack of research. For example, the book list top 10 terrorist hot spots for 2010. Not only is this list dated and incorrect, it actually list Russia in the top 10. Russia is considered one of the lowest risk countries in the world for terrorism and has never been a terror hotspot. I'm starting to think the author thinks Russia is still under communist rule and that citizens are required to report to Lenin labor camps. That Russian children are eating by the infestation of vodka drinking bears. Meanwhile Syria has been a terror hot spot for more than a decade and is not on this list. Libya, another one that has been a hot spot for several decades, not on the list. Another, Thailand, not a terrorist hot spot, yet on this books list of terror hot spots. Just some really bad information here. This type of gross misinformation makes me wonder how accurate the other info is.
this book explores all the traditional areas of expatriates, but there are a couple of added extras! First, it begins with expats from different areas actually commenting on their experiences. It is not limited to the authors experiences alone.
This book also divides up by areas and includes a section of Europe. Most books no2wadays cover only those folks living in China, South or Central America, or New Zealand. And France is one of the most economical of places to live if you move to the south!
Get it, read it, enjoy it and then make your decision!
